The MILWAUKEE M12 Copper Tubing Cutter is the industry’s first cordless unit, cutting up to 10X faster than conventional tubing cutters. Milwaukee engineered this versatile copper tubing cutter for plumbers, mechanical contractors, and remodelers that runs at 500 RPM for unmatched cutting speed.

The patent-pending cutting mechanism automatically adjusts diameter to cut Type K, L, and M copper pipes from 3/8” to 1” (OD from ½” to 1-1/8”). The unique rotating cutting head cuts installed copper piping with as little as 1-1/2” clearance, and the lightweight, the inline design provides users with a longer reach and reduces wrist strain when working in confined spaces. A built-in LED light illuminates the cutting surface. The electronic overload protection and unibody construction provide maximum durability.

Mine got wet a few times, but just splashes of water. It still works just fine. (I did make sure it was thoroughly dry before putting it away.)

any reason to buy multitool instead of oscillating saw?

Asked by potato February 26, 2021
2
Answers

The multitool will allow you to use it in tighter areas you can’t get an oscillating saw into. The tool blades can be adjusted to multiple angles vs. the saw. There are times the saw is better, and times the tool is better. I have both but use the multitool more.

Very good construction and saved allot of time ! It’s worth the investment for sure. I installed 3 on demand water heaters with allot of precision on the cut. I think as well the light aids in marking cuts visible Very good product.

Must have multi tool
I’ve been a long time Milwaukee fan and this multi tool does not disappoint. I’ve used it for just about cutting anything you could imagine. Makes cutting for electric boxes in shiplap a dream and drywall like cutting hot butter. If needed you can cut a 2x4 no problem. The trick to a quality cut for what your cutting is the blade quality, there expensive but worth every penny. If you buy cheap blades you will not like it. It can be a battery hog so have a few battery’s and a 4 amp hr battery is best for big jobs. It’s a bargain and the possibility’s are endless even cuts pvc and copper. Highly recommended this tool.
by DaveB
Price doesn’t reflect quality
Had for a few years but only used a handful of times for small DIY projects. 1 star for ergonomics. Definitely not beat up, even the bag is still clean. The positive side of the plug got stuck in the battery. No idea how this even happens, battery gets pulled straight out. Tool didn’t even pay for itself.

This is the Milwaukee M12 Multi-Tool kit. It comes with two batteries (one 3.0 Ah and one 1.5 Ah), Charger, and Bag. I bought this tool for one specific purpose—to cut out holes in sheetrock for electrical boxes (see Photo 1). It gets really old using a corded tool for this purpose, so I decided to go cordless. This tool is absolutely perfect for this job. It’s light, easy to maneuver, and gets the job done quickly. Highly recommended.

A little heavy compared to others but works great to cut in outlets. Has a variable speed selector.

Overall a must have tool with multiple uses if you buy the proper blades separately. Plunge cuts through drywall, trim baseboard and door jambs with ease. Also great for grout removal and scrapping adhesive.

This Milwaukee M12 Copper Tube Cutter is amazing! I have used it for commercial piping and at my house for some hard to reach piping. It provides a very fast and clean cut. Cutting down on time to make all the cuts needed. It's easy to use, and after 200 cuts, the M12 battery was still going. I even cut a pipe with water (not pressurized) and the water spilled onto the tool, and the tool worked great. My only issue with the tool, is that I wish it could go up to 1 1/2" pipe. I love it, and am already telling everyone to get it.
